Fleetwood Corporation History

The company started business operations in 1964 as a distributor of caravans and caravan accessories. It became floated on the Australian Stock Exchange in 1987.

FWD was incorporated with a focus to acquire three companies from the previously known Fleetwood Group, which started its business operations during the mid 1960s. In 1994, FWD completed the acquisition of Camperent Australia, having the licensing rights for Hertz campervan hire in Australia. In mid 2001, the Company took over the business operations of Camec, an Australasian RV parts distributor. In 2003, FWD completed the acquisition of Windsor Caravans and Car-Van. The Company sold its WA-based caravan park operations in mid 2004.
